Clippers president Lawrence Frank called Blake Griffin “Clipper Royalty,” and a few days later, the Clippers gave Griffin a five-year max contract.

So, it jumps out when Lawrence Frank puts DeAndre Jordan in similar company.

Frank, via Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register:

We look at Blake and D.J. (DeAndre Jordan) as Clippers for life. We wanted to continue to build around Blake and D.J.

Jordan is eligible for a contract extension that could start next season at up to $27,170,820 and be worth up to $121,725,274 over four years. Or he could wait until next summer’s free agency, when his max starting salary projects to be $35 million, which would carry a five-year max of $205 million if he re-signs or a four-year max of $152 million if he signs elsewhere.
